The City of Houston Building Materials Reuse Warehouse takes donations of gently used building materials, stores the material, and makes it available free of charge to non-profit organizations. To date, we have diverted 80 tons of construction/demolition material from area landfills. We are well on our way to meet our goal to divert 200 tons by next spring. Numerous individuals and companies have made material donations. Numerous nonprofit, religious, educational, and community development organizations have put tons of material to reuse.
